Photo: China Modern Torture Methods (2)- Electric Shock

Posted by Author on December 27, 2006

Falun Dafa Information Center

Evidence has surfaced of over 100 torture methods being employed against Falun Gong practitioners in China’s labour camps, detention centers, and mental hospitals.

Torture Methods (2) – Electric shock

Electric shockElectric batons are among the most commonly used torture instruments employed by police officers and jail guards in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.

(Picture left: illustration: Electric shock )

They use electric batons that carry voltages as high as 300,000 volts to shock practitioners’ sensitive areas, including the mouth, center of the palms, center of the bottom of the feet, genitals, chest, neck, and breasts. Sometimes they use several electric batons simultaneously to shock practitioners.

The labour camp authorities often pour water on the practitioners to intensify the electric shocks. Some police also use a homemade electric shocking device; it resembles a masonry brick in size and shape, and it carries a much higher voltage than regular electric batons.

The skin will break open and bleed in every place that receives a shock from this device.


1. Ms. Gao Rongrong, 36, tortured with electric batons for 7 consecutive hours on face by Labour Camp officials.

Victim: Ms. Gao Rongrong, accountant at the Luxun Fine Arts College in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, northeaset China

Tortured face of Gao Rongrong

In July 2003, Gao Rongrong was sent tothe Longshan Forced Labour Camp (Shenyang City) because she made peaceful appeals to the government to end the persecution of Falun Gong. During her detention, Ms. Gao had been beaten by camp officials, according to sources familiar with her case.

“At approximately 3:00 p.m. on May 7, 2004, Tang Yubao, the deputy head of the No. 2 Brigade, along with team leader Jiang Zhaohua, called Ms. Gao to the duty office and tortured her with electric batons for seven hours, according to these sources.

“Those detained with Ms. Gao in the labour camp say she sustained burns on her face, head, and neck, which caused her face to swell and become disfigured.

“Her face was covered with blisters, and her hair was matted with pus and blood. She could open her eyes only a crack because her face and mouth were severely swollen and deformed.” ( full report of this torture case)

2. Woman’s Breasts Disfigured and Infected from Severe Electric Shock Torture

Victim: Ms. Wang Yunjie, female, a Falun Gong practitioner from Dalian City, Liaoning Province

Torture happened: In Masanjia Labor Camps, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province

excerpt of the story:

“At first, they kept Ms. Wang in isolation. Two collaborators monitored her. She was denied sleep and forced to stand still in the corner of the room. The next day, she had to sit on a chair with her hands tied behind her back to the back of the chair. At night, they had her wear a motorcycle helmet.

“The guards kept chopsticks and a basin of cold water ready to use, and whenever Ms. Wang closed her eyes, they poured water over her and hit the helmet hard with the chopsticks.

“Two guards from Benxi, holding electric batons, shouted, “We will see who is tougher!” The two men tore Ms. Wang’s shirt open and shocked her breasts with two electric batons for 30 minutes.

“Afterwards, they made her stand still for the entire night. The next morning, guard Guo Tieying asked Ms. Wang nastily whom she would follow. Ms. Wang replied, “I will follow the teachings of Falun Gong.”

“Guo Tieying immediately brought in two guards and several collaborators to torture her. They tore a bed sheet into strips and tied her legs in a cross-legged position (with legs double-crossed, as in the ‘full lotus’ position). Next they handcuffed her arms behind her back and tied her upper body to her legs, making Ms. Wang look like a ball. Then they suspended her in the air by the handcuffs, with her hands still behind her back.

“She suffered excruciating pain from this torture for seven hours.

“Afterwards, Ms. Wang could no longer walk with her back straight, but was bent over, nor could she sit straight. Her breasts were disfigured by the intense shocks, and eventually developed serious infections.” ( full report of this torture case )

3. Prof. Zhang Kunlun, an Canadian citizen ‘s experienceprof. Zhang Kunlun

“My name is Kunlun Zhang. I am a Canadian citizen and a professor of art. Because I practice Falun Gong, I was arrested three times while staying in China to take care of my elderly mother-in-law.

On November 14, 2000, I was sentenced without trial by the Chinese authorities to three years in (Shandong province ) labour camp because I refused to denounce Falun Gong. With the help of the Canadian government, Amnesty International, and the international community, I was released on January 10, 2001.

“During my detention, policemen beat me to the floor and shocked me all over my body with high-voltage electric batons. They threatened that if I uttered a sound, they would shock my mouth.

The head of the police station said to me, “We have orders from Jiang Zemin. As long as you refuse to denounce Falun Gong, we can do whatever we want to you. If you were beaten to death, we could simply bury you and tell the outside world that you had committed suicide.”

My arms, legs, and other areas were burnt in many places from the intense electric shocks. I could even smell my own burning flesh. The beatings and electric shocks injured my left leg badly. It took three months for the wounds to heal.” ( Statement by Mr. Kunlun Zhang)

      That is a typcial comment with know understanding of what another world war would be like, We as a family lost alot of relatives in the last world war alot of them were in the royal airforce some on mainland bombing raids.
      But by todays standards it would be like comparing pea shooters to rocket launchers.
      Far as China do you realise within the next 10years if not sooner will be the world leading country, while the rest of us are on the brink of going bankrupt china is buying up all the steel , oil ,real estate, etc, there already now breathing down the neck of america to be the most powerful country in the world.
      Wether you like it or not it doesnt alter the fact that if we went to war with china most of us would either be dead or at the very least bankrupt.
      So hope you were joking because war is not a option and far as sanctions it wont happen because china is keeping the world accomony rolling, we would be biteing the hand that feeds are face so to speak.

    I cannot believe that this was done by man. It is like a devils work.

    A work of blood on a canvas of death, sympathy; the pig flying past the window.

    I cant belive china will torture their peoples because they practice Falun Gong?! They could just jail the people but not torture them with inhumane methods. In Malaysia, three different religion unite together and live wihout problems. I am a chinese and if I practice anything different to Muslims, I will not be torture in this way ! Just wtf for china, you sucks deep! Correct this mistake or you shall suffer your peoples revenge.

    When will the world recognize that they are tolerating a regime that is far more worse and cynical than the Nazi’s. Not me, my children will have to fight the war against them. It’s not an if, only a when. I only hope this degenerate regime will not escape swift justice.
